Frequencies is the second installment in Montreal native Nicolas Bernier’s avant-garde audiovisual series, in which a performer must tamper with sound waves and light bursts in real time – like a sculptor would carve out his mold. Just as impressive as Frequencies (A) was at simultaneously rendering sound visible and a stream of light audible, Frequencies finds the performer processing sequences of light and purely synthetic sounds with extreme precision – resulting in intermittent light blasts within small acrylic structures. Whether he’s hatching inventive sound installations, musique concrète or live video art, the multidisciplinary Bernier is ever mindful of striking a delicate balance between intellect and sensuality, and between organic sounds and digital processing. Having showcased his work at Barcelona’s Sónar, Berlin’s Transmediale, Austria’s Ars Electronica and MUTEK 2008, Frequencies will be presented in international premiere.
